New Featured Video

New video available to view now - Why Study the Eucharist in Contemporary Methodism with David Monkton: Dr David Monkton looks at how there has been a renewal of Eucharistic understanding in contemporary Methodism. This has come about from a variety of sources such as a rediscovery of Methodism's roots in Anglicanism, the influence of the ecumenical movements (and the Lima Baptism, Eucharist, and Ministry document in particular), and the impact of 'the liturgical movement' in Christianity.
